As a child, I played with dolls. A lot. In fact, constantly.
I had two that were my favorites. I had a Chatty Cathy doll. The kind with the pull string in the back that made her talk. And talk. And talk.
And a Skipper doll. Barbie's little sister. She had the coolest wardrobe ever.
I loved these two beauties so much that one day, I decided in my childish imagination, I'd have two daughters and they would each look just like my two favorite dolls...
Maybe it was a prayer, because obviously, I got my wish. ;-)
